One does not have to do anything to become a grandfather. It simply happens when your child has a child. It is up to you to decide how involved you will be in your grandchild’s life. There is an inherent biological relationship but the emotional bonding between grandfather and grandchild comes only with effort. It happens when the grandchild sees that you are open to forming a relationship. It happens when you get off your easy chair and make the effort to see what matters to your grandchild.

My Granddad

You are my Granddad

You are not just a fad

Like an x box, tablet or phone

I know you tend to groan

But you are my Granddad

Who makes me happy and sad

You can be very annoying

But when you’re in the bath

And I hear you sing

I am glad you are around

When I hear that sound

You are like a Victorian pear

You have always been there

Very mellow and soft to touch

Granddad I love you so much

Gillian Sims



My Dads Dad



My Granddad came to stay


My Dad bought him a card


I’m only four


And not sure


What this card was for


And this puzzled me


Was Granddad doing his family tour


I’m not sure


I’m only four


Was it Granddads birthday


So I asked my dad


To explain to me


What this card was for


He said it’s Fathers day


And your Granddad is daddy to me

A son writes about his father. Dad worked hard all his life. He was devoted to his family and friends. A man so sure and steady that you thought he’d be around forever.

My Hero

© Wayne Baggerly

My hero never fought in a war 
He never drove a big fancy car 
He did not go very far in school 
But he lived his life by the golden rule 

He never had much money to spend 
But he had the respect of all his friends 
He was born and died in the same county 
He never felt the need to search the world for bounty 
He got up each morning at the break of dawn 
Ate breakfast, packed his lunch and then he was gone 

It takes a lot of work with a family to feed 
A lot of devotion to meet their need 
But he did it for years till his family was grown 
Then he could retire and get to stay home 

A time for rest but it didn’t last long 
He became sick and then he was gone 
I guess I thought he would always be there 
When I had a problem I needed to share 
But when I am low and feeling sad 
I still draw strength from my hero, my Dad.

Daddy don’t cry, 
because you were always there for me
I’ve cried many tears too, 
that you couldn’t see
Daddy I love you, 
keep those words close to your heart 
I know you love me too, 
even though we are apart
Daddy mommy loves you too, 
though she doesn’t let it show
I have seen her sitting alone 
and many tears flow
Daddy one day you will be back, 
and we will be a family again
I have our last picture together 
and stare at it till the day’s end
Daddy, as you sleep, 
have dreams of mommy and me
I have a smile on this little face 
that I wish you could see
Daddy, my little arms are stretched out,
I know your arms are stretched out too,
So here is a big hug for you.

You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence.” ― Octavia E. Butler
